The 1982 Masters Tournament was the 46th Masters Tournament, held April 8–11 at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia. Craig Stadler won his only major championship on the first sudden-death playoff hole over Dan Pohl.[2]

In the final round, Stadler shot a 33 on the front had a six-shot lead with seven holes to play. He bogeyed four of those holes, including a three-putt from twenty feet (6 m) on the 72nd green to fall into the playoff with Pohl, which began and ended at the tenth hole. Pohl carded two rounds of 67 on the weekend after two rounds of 75.[3][4]

This was the final year that players were required to use caddies from Augusta National.[5][6] The practice was previously employed at the other majors and some PGA Tour events well into the 1970s;[7][8][9] the U.S. Open first allowed the players to use their own caddies in 1976.[10][11] The policy change at Augusta National was announced by chairman Hord Hardin in November 1982.[12]
